off the race to the top, let's hire 100,000 new math and science teachers who are actually trained in math and science. let's continue to focus on early childhood education, makes a big difference for kids who are particularly low income. part of the race to the top let's figure out what are the dropout factors out there. a couple thousand schools where we know they are really underperforming and let's transform those schools. >> in the state of the union you said i'm putting you on notices, colleges, if you don't reduce this tuition, you don't see your funding dropped. is there any evidence that they have done anything to changed? that they have listened to that threat? >> there are some schools that we have. the biggest problem that we have with tuition, especially at public universities, is state legislatures have been shifting priorities, and what we've said to state legislatures is you've got to do your part and prioritize this because how well your state does is going to depend on how good -- how well your work force is educated, but what we've also seen is schools starting t
three years of science and at least three years of social science, comparedded to those who students who did not complete a core curriculum, those students completing a core curriculum scored 144 points higher on the s.a.t. >> suarez: what do we know about the predictive value of the test itself? you have a threshold for college readiness. if you go into an institution of higher learning without reaching that threshold, are you automatically going to fail, not complete? what do we know? >> absolutely not. that threshold is a guide. it allows us to look at groups of students. what we know is that the group of students who meet the threshold have a 65% likelihood of achieving a b-minus g.p.a. or higher during their freshman year. obviously there are other factors that admission officers take into consideration. but it does help guide us in thinking about where we are and the need to have more students better prepared for college. currently of 100 ninth graders, 44 will go on to college. yet only 21 will graduate within a six-year period. this is highly problematic. >> suarez: roger thompso
may sound like science fiction but google headquarters where engineers are working to make the dream a reality. explains a new and modernized of the road. >> perhaps the drive point governor jerry brown arrived today at google headquarters toyota. he then went inside and signed a law clearing the way for driverless cars to hit the road. >> self driving car is another step forward in this long march of california pioneering the future and leading not just the country, the whole world. >> the new law will set standards including requiring a human being to be behind the wheel in case of an emergency, but that may eventually change according to google cofounder. >> you can have a car drop you off at work, get out, walk through a little bit of space, and it goes off and takes somebody else somewhere else. >> he says driverless cars may enable large car sharing and potentially reduce the demand for parking. engineers say driverless cars will not be subject to what most automobile crashes, human error. >> i expect going to be far safer than human-driven cars. >> judging by a reaction, some
sophisticated mathematics and the science behind meteorology. we used data from many sources - data coming from the national weather service, data coming from farms - to predict not just the weather, but how that weather impacts farms. > > lloyd, tell me, what exactly does this do? what does this information do for, say, the farmer? > > well, instead of getting a generic and fairly vague weather forecast, we can provide a detailed forecast of when and where it might rain tomorrow on the farm, and more importantly, how that would affect the operations. so when i talk to farmers, one of the things that they tell me is a big challenge, especially in the drought-stricken season, is irrigation. they want to be much more efficient at using water, and they want to schedule that ahead of time. that's dependent on where and when it will rain tomorrow - the temperature, the humidity. the idea is that we not only predict the weather, but we can predict the schedule of the irrigation, where and when the water would need to be applied. > > is this being rolled out now, being put into use? > > well, we've ac

't understand it. i don't understand it. science has been rejected on so many counts and things like the clean water act which make sense. before the clean water act was passed, the quality of water was governed by each state individually. and it wasn't working. rivers were catching on fire. the clean water act was passed. there were federal regulations governing the quality of our water. and things got a lot better and now we want to go back to how it was before which is clearly a system that doesn't work. >> eliot: it is staggering when you recognize how much the political debate has shift in the wrong direction. when it comes to water, what are you telling people to organize, how can they build another base of support to take actions that are needed not only to protect the oceans that you focus on and talk about so eloquently but also domestically, our internal water sources, what should people be doing? >> the united states has a great water crisis on its hands and i think we all need to be mindful of where our water

into it, keep in mind, president obama has a science advisor john hold drum, one. hazards after free society is cheap energy. secretary chu getting solyndra and solar companies money. what their goal was as president obama stated to make energy rates skyrocket. only makes conceiveable sense in electricity and energy is in the stratosphere much more expensive. solar only begins to make sense. so that was the original plan. that didn't come through because congress failed to pass a climate bill which would have helped. president obama is doing everything he can to make energy more difficult when it comes to coal in the united states and other forms of drilling and things like that. so what's happened is it is ideology that is driving this policy. they want renewable energy. it is based on fear of man made global warming. they say we have to get off carbon based energy. need to do it fast. this is their ideology. that is why they're doing stuff that makes no sense. federal government as venture capitalist makes no sense. melissa: venture capitalist their record is not great. they have f
with the same science? >> well, i don't believe that, i believe what they are doing is reweighting the data. that would not establish a trend. the accurate polling which is no reason to go to the polls. go to the accurate one. rasmussen shows the race within a point or two in each of the states . by the way, the trend in rasmussen and in my own poling is that romney was doing foin in august and fell back because of the democratic convention and recovered at end of last week and now even . that is the reality. if the election were held today. romney would carry ohio, florida, nevada, virge virge and a shot at wisconsin where i am today. and would win over 300 electoral votes. the media is deliberately or inadvertantly and wrongly showing the race to be different. >> brian: new york times and washington post using that science having him trailing in all three . nationally everyone said it is a dead heat. dick, stick around. we have to talk to you more. coming up there is no doubt about it that the attack in libya was an act of terror, why does the president blame a movie. dick morris has an i
